"I used to have this - Allan's first solo project.  Unfortunately he got screwed over it so it has bitter memories for him."

"Found this in a second hand shop in Liverpool.  Allan slates it cos it was released without consulting him but I think it's magnificent.  Lifesaver on very long drives."

"Very interesting.  Dancy, dubby, d'n'b ambient album constructed around a set of AH guitar solos recorded several years before."
